    I have been interested in backyard chickens for some time now, I've even spent time on here fawning over chickens! Well my dreams came true yesterday - all 9 of them!
    They're about a week old, I'm sure they are Silkies (white and possibly buff) and might have 2 boys in the mix (judging by size comparison).

    Newspaper is slippery and can sometimes cause problems with splayed feet. Towel paper has a little grip to it. [​IMG]
